that is depressing since I am a complete die hard fan of simple facebook connect – http://ottopress.com/wordpress-plugins/simple-facebook-connect/ I hope it doesn’t die out. Let’s just see how it all plays out in the future devs. Thanks for the heads up
Edit your profile on your back dashboard, not your public profile. It will give you a list of nicknames. Select the one you want, and it should work fine
i came in search for help with this. Group avatars don’t show up on any of my bp sites and I want to be able to offer them in my communities – that’s what a lot of members are going to want and what’s going to encourage them to sign up and actively participate. How does this bug get fixed? I’ve searched around for a solution and can’t find it anywhere
the invite anyone plugin is very awesome – allows your users to invite 1 person or 1000 – whatever admin sets. The invite email is awesome in the sense that the site owner and the member inviting can customize it on both ends. Love this plugin. Thanks for the development!
I’ve actually used this to my advantage on mine, because if it doesn’t work, and it often doesn’t, the alternative – which is always an option anyways is having members set up accounts at gravatar in order to display avatars correctly. You can disable the gravatar upload on your site on the general components set up. Just click yes to the disable gravatar uploads.
The benefit is, that is an additional verification step to your website users to prevent against spammers. Then set your default to the ones provided in your dashboard. They don’t like that their avatar displays like that. so they go get a gravatar account so that their custom avatar displays. On some of my sites, I actually have added the option to add members gravatar accounts to their profile for cross promotional purposes. I do have a member that has gotten a gravatar and has her gravatar link listed.
awesome – looks good so far! People like that facebook-like feel
Tweetstream works on some of my sites and not others – i have yet to figure out what causes that to happen. Facestream works on everything without fail.
absolutely. I think it will be such an incredibly helpful plugin. Thanks 3sixty!
You don’t want to delete users if they pose threats to your community because they can re-register using the same creds if you do so and they will continue to be a nuisance to you and your community forever if such is the case. I’m new to using bp, but have already figured out that to get rid of these suckers, this is what you do the easy way.
Go to your user area in your dashboard – checkmark the user, change role to “blocked user”. Then, from the front end of your site, from your front end admin panel, go to the user and up top in admin options it will give you the options of what to do, mark them as a spammer. It doesn’t delete them, as I said – you don’t want to. But it disables them from everything and prevents them from being a neverending nightmare to your site.
I have so many people I want to donate to and want to thank for all the tools & services provided that we would be charged big bucks for! But if you can’t find where to donate to BP – which I must say is really awesome of those who do want to support services by donating, I agree with donating to authors & devs – because no two frameworks are alike, and these tools are what make them possible & unique for all of us!
In all honestly, I wouldn’t recommend disabling email verification. In fact – you actually should not only use that, but use it with Gravatar to double verify members. My BP communities are brand new, in dev stages right now. I’ve already been subjected to spammers which is why I support use of Gravatars – because not only will your users be verified in your community, but globally and this is a big step in spam prevention.
If you want to customize the registration page, many of them can be through your theme framework. However, too much code will slice your page & overall framework right down the middle and break your site.
